Extracellular nucleotides exert a variety of biological actions through several kinds of P2 receptors in many tissues and cell types. We found that treatment with nucleotides increases intracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) in SK-N-BE(2)C human neuroblastoma cells with a following order of potency: UDP > UTP > ADP >> ATP. Reverse(More)
ATP is co-localized with norepinephrine at the sympathetic nerve terminals and may be released simultaneously upon neuronal stimulation, which results in activation of purinergic receptors. To examine whether leptin synthesis and lipolysis are influenced by P2 purinergic receptor activation, the effects of ATP and other nucleotides on leptin secretion and(More)
Previous ultrastructural studies indicating a higher number of axoaxonic contacts on individual low-threshold mechanoreceptive afferents in the principalis (Vp) than in the oralis (Vo) of cat trigeminal sensory nuclear complex (TSNC) suggest that the synaptic microcircuitry associated with primary afferents manifests unique differences across the sensory(More)
